March Chapter Meeting featuring Tiffany Blassingame

TOPIC: We’ve Got a Diversity Statement. Now What?

You’ve read NAPO’s Diversity Initiative Statement. You’ve attended the Antiracism Presentation. You are inspired to make change for the industry. But you’re just not sure where to start. Or you’ve started and you’re unsure of how to move the work forward. There are five major components to managing complex change within our businesses. This session will identify those five components and how to use the Diversity Initiative Statement to develop and implement DEI statements, initiatives, and practices within your productivity or organizing business.

  1. Examine the 5 components to a structural framework around DEIJB
  2. Analyze NAPO’s Diversity Initiative Statement for a deeper understanding of DEI
  3. Discuss lessons learned and common missteps in developing a professional DEI statement

Tiffany’s Bio: Tiffany Blassingame started Simple Organization to provide organizing and productivity strategies to help others develop a more organized approach to home, work, and school.  As a divorced parent of a teenage son and a school administrator, she understands the delicate balance between raising children, progressing toward personal goals, working in your career, and being a good steward to others and to yourself.  It sometimes feels impossible to keep it all together!  Simple Organization is designed to offer strategies to help busy adults and their families go from chaos to calm by achieving wellness through organization and productivity. Tiffany’s varied experience as an educator makes it natural for her to specialize in student organization.  Her specialties include working with families of elementary, middle, and high school students as well as college students and educators. Tiffany is a member of the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals (NAPO) as well as the vice-president of the National Association of Black Professional Organizers (NABPO).  She is also a professional organizer with Ebony & Orderly, a collaboration of 6 Black professional organizers in Atlanta. She serves on the NAPO Diversity and Inclusion Task Force and speaks frequently on the topics of diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice on various platforms.
